Delta ‘Hatter’s Hill’ Marlborough Pinot Noir 2012

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 04-Apr-2016
Even dark garnet-red colour with suggestions of brick on the edge. This has a full and voluminous bouquet with gentle and ethereal layers of soft, savoury red berry fruits harmoniously melded with layers of dried herbs and secondary undergrowth and game notes along with lifted oak elements. Complexing detail emerges with aeration. Medium-full bodied, the palate features softly rich and succulent, mouthfilling flavours of savoury red berry fruits seamlessly interwoven with complex secondary flavours of dried herbs and undergrowth, and lifted oak. The mouthfeel is integrated with fine-grained, flowery tannins providing positive structure and integrated acidity. The wine has good drive and carries to a long and lingering finish with secondary undergrowth nuances. This is a harmoniously integrated Pinot Noir with complex secondary and lifted flavours and a fine-grained structure. Match with game meat and casseroles over the next 4-5+ years. Dijon clone fruit, hand-picked and fermented with 10% whole clusters to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 55% new French oak. 18.5/20 Apr 2016 RRP $34.00
